II Sam. 3:2-3; 14:25-26; 15:10-18, 30-37; 17; 18


INTRODUCTION. David had several wives and children. Although David was a

man after God's own heart (I Sam. 13:14; Acts 13:22), David had family problems as

a result of his sin of adultery with Bathsheba. Although David repented of his sin,

God told him through the prophet Nathan that the sword would never depart from his

house (II Sam. 11-12).

Through the years David's sons caused him much anguish and heartache. When


David neared the end of his reign, his son Absalom, who was handsome and popu-

lar with the people, attempted to usurp the throne. David and his followers were


forced to flee Jerusalem for a period of time as Absalom gained control of the king-

dom. Eventually Absalom was slain and David was restored to power, but he


mourned greatly for his slain son (II Sam. 15-18).
